And now onto the interview :)

1: What's your favorite candy?
Hot Tamales

2: Candy, Cake, or Cookies?
Cookies as long as they're homemade

3: If you were visited by a famous person what would you say to him/her?
Depends. If this is a regular famous person I'd say something like "Hey. Read any good books lately?" If this is Johnny Depp, I'd just make really awkward sounds and try hard not to fall on my face. 

4: How would you solve world-hunger?
Make month-long service trips to third world countries or impoverished areas in the U.S. a mandatory requirement for high school graduation. If people SEE a need and experience it firsthand, it's awfully hard to walk away unchanged. 

5: What is one job you would never want to do?
Masseuse. No really. I cannot touch strangers for a living. No. 

6: If you got to meet a singer or actor/actress of you choice who would you pick?
Johnny Depp. Except then ... awkward noises and C.J. flat on her face. 

7: What is one song you can relate to?
Ruins by Bebo Norman

8: What is your favorite store?
The closest bookstore!

9: What are your 5 favorite movies?
Just five? Ack! Okay, let's see. Harry Potter 8, Sherlock Holmes, Pirates of the Carribean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, The Dark Knight, and Inception

10: If your book was made into a movie who would you choose to play the main characters?
Logan: Chris Pine
Rachel: Danielle Pannebaker
Commander: Either John Noble or Bill Nighy

11: What would you want the movie's theme song to be?
In This Moment's "Star-Crossed Wasteland" (live version) or E.S. Posthumous' "Unstoppable"

12: What was your inspiration to writing Defiance?
I'd had the idea of a fire-breathing Leviathon-like creature living underground in my head for a long time. One day I saw a picture of a fortress that reminded me of a city-state, and I wondered what would have to happen to drive us back to living in city-states again. That idea collided with the underground creatures and Defiance was born. 

13: Which was the easiest character for you to write about?
Rachel. I can relate to how grief and pain broke her down and forged her into someone she barely recognized. 

14: Tell us about the sequel to Defiance:
Deception continues the story of Logan and Rachel as they try to outwit one enemy, outrun another, and survive the betrayal of someone they were sure they could trust. 

15: How many book are going to follow Defiance?
Defiance is the first book in a trilogy. Deception comes out 8/27/13. Book 3 will come out August '14.

16: What are some of your favorite sayings?
Bitterness is the poison you feed your enemy that ends up killing you. 

The only way to truly fail is to quit. 

Do or do not, there is no try.
